• Windows 10 Icons missing from Windows 11

    To save everyone the time I wasted, there are several icons available in Windows 10 (imagers.dll, shell32.dll) which are missing from those same files in Windows 11. (No they are not buried in any of the (10+?) older “dll” files – I searched carefully.) I have sent an email to Bill asking why. I will report back.

    An example?  The yellow file folder with a “down arrow” which I find signifies “Download” nicely.

    See my next rant regarding how to trick Windows 11 into letting you put certain Icons/Shortcuts on the taskbar.

      Yeah, I tried copying the relevant Windows 10 dll file to Windows 11 to get some of the icons back, but it didn’t work. I prefer the yellow folder download icon as well, although I suppose I’m used to the vertical green arrow now. One thing that definitely was not working for me was the Win 11 folder shortcut arrow, in which the diagonal arrow is very narrow and hard to see (at least for me). I got around that with Winaero Tweaker to get an older curved arrow. I generally don’t use tweaker programs, but that narrow arrow was driving me nuts.
